RYAN GIGGS’ son Zach starred in Manchester United’s Under 16s win over Coleraine on Monday night.
The Red Devils’ youth outfit scored twice in the opening half to ensure they kicked off their mini-tour of Northern Ireland with a victory.
Zach, who can play as a centre-back or full-back, was called up by Wales to face England back in May.
And the teenager continued his development by starting United’s U16s win over Coleraine at Seahaven in Portstewart.
COMPETITION: SPOT THE BALL TO WIN A CAR AND CASH
Victor Musa broke the deadlock after a quarter of an hour by firing home at the back post following a deep cross from Jacob Devaney.
Jack Moorhouse then doubled United’s lead with a long-range free-kick before the half-hour mark which caught the keeper out.
Although the future Old Trafford stars saw out the win, there was also a penalty shootout after the game to give the players valuable experience.
And United claimed a 5-3 victory from the spot-kicks as well with all 10 players allowed to take an effort from 12 yards.
Wanted singer Max George – who is dating Ryan’s ex-wife Stacey – was cheering on Zach from home after uploading a short clip on Instagram.
He captioned the post: “Casually watching superstar (Zach) for (Manchester United)… I think Stacey is a little proud…”
Zach will next get the chance to impress when United take on a Ballymena United academy side on Wednesday night.
Father Ryan however is currently in court after being charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her sister.
Giggs pleaded not guilty to the charges when he appeared at Manchester Crown Court last week.
